There is quite a bit of controversy surrounding the Chausie as some people say that they are essentially a cross between the Burmese cat and the domestic cat.

Some of the Chausie traits are considered more feral than those of the Burmese cat, including their hairless, short coat, unique patterns on the legs and underparts, and their lack of tail development.

Khao Manee – $11,000
The Khao Plort (Khao Manee) cat, which is also known by its scientific name of the Diamond Eye cat or Papillon cat is an extremely rare breed of cats originating in Thailand. They were described in the Papillon, or Dog Book Poetry, around the thirteenth century. Khao Prut is a cat with a long, straight coat that is light or dark brown in color, with no spot markings. They are usually black on a white background, although other colors such as blue and orange have been seen on them.
Khao Manee cats do have a double coat, but unlike many other cat breeds they are not matted, so the cat has extra length. Their long and sleek jacket helps protect the cat from cold climates, although it does lose its natural protection in warmer temperatures. In Thailand, the cat is the only domestic cat. It is thought to descend from old breeding stock taken from the forests of Laos and Cambodia. Many claim that the Khao Manees was originally from China, but their exact origins are unknown. However, there are many similarities between the appearance and characteristics of the Thai Khao Prut and the Chinese Long Hair variety.
When a Khao Manoe is first brought home, it is very timid. They will spend most of their time in a small area indoors, even if the rest of the house is well furnished and there are no drafts in the air. They are also very independent but may require the presence of their owner for a while. Their temperament and behavior are very playful and they enjoy being a part of the family.

The Savannah cat- $50,000
The Savannah cat is a purebred hybrid cat, which means it is not a purebred cat that comes from the wild. It is a mixture of a domestic cat and a server. It was first bred in Kenya in 1875 and is now recognized as the country’s official state cat. Their ancestors, the Felis silvestris, have originated in Africa and were used for hunters. They were later used by men as companions and hunting animals and were later bred as show cats. The popularity of The Savannah cat soared in the United States after an appearance on television and in movies, especially the popular show “The Cat in the Hat.”
Some cat owners think that the Savannah cat is not really a true cat because it does not have its own territory. This is not true at all, even though they are territorial and do not like being alone.
Because of the Savannah cat’s popularity, it is often considered a purebred that is prone to problems with their skin. In actuality, most purebreds are much less likely to develop skin problems than felines that are mixed breeds. There are many differences between purebreds and their mixes, such as the purebred Savannah cat’s eyes are stronger and brighter than a mixed breed cat. Since most cats do not need much exercise, a purebred Savannah cat may be more active than a mixed breed.
